A motorcyclist also can be hidden by an abundance of other objects on and around the road, including other vehicles, shrubbery, signs and even pedestrians. An example that comes to mind was when I was riding with another motorcyclist in a standard two-bike staggered formation. Ahead, a car was waiting to pull out of an alley. I realized that because of a light post, a sign and a pedestrian waiting for a bus, the driver couldn't see me, even though I could see the entire car (except the driver). The curvature of the road meant I would be out of his view until I was almost on top of him. Since there was a gap between us, and a line of cars ahead and no cars for a distance behind us, it seemed likely the driver would pull out as we approached. To get where the driver could see me, I moved over to the right side of the road. Unfortunately, my companion then moved to the part of the lane that I had been using to maintain our stagger. Now he was out of sight, which fortunately he realized before we reached the alley.
